Biomedical Engineering on Portable Devices (BioPD 2016) - Workshop

Technologies to detect and analyze emotions with the help of sensor networks

There is a significant demand for tools and services supporting rehabilitation, wellbeing and healthy life styles while reducing the level of intrusiveness, increasing real-time available, reliable results and maintaining costs. Self-monitoring applications need to be improved to move beyond tracking exercise habits and capture a more comprehensive digital footprint of human behavior such that emotional states are detected and appropriate recommendations and interventions are deployed to systematically increase the overall personal wellbeing. This is especially important for aging population, as behavioral patterns may have a direct effect on the life expectancy and the cost of care. This workshop focusses on technologies to detect and analyze a person's emotion with the help of a sensor network in order to support diagnostic decisions.


Topics of interest
  • Portable wearable devices
  • Emotion detection
  • Sensor developmet
  • Signal processing
  • Algorithm design for emotion and status dection
  • Real time data mining
